Dinah Craik — The only way to meet affliction…

The only way to meet affliction is to pass through it solemnly, slowly, with humility and faith, as the Israelites passed through the sea.  Then its very waves of misery will divide, and become to us a wall, on the right side and on the left, until the gulf narrows before our eyes, and we land safe on the opposite shore.
